On September 26, 2021, Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou returned to China after reaching a deferred prosecution agreement with US prosecutors. She did not plead guilty or pay fines. Being charged by the US, Meng was illegally detained for nearly three years in Canada. The US has never provided any proof of its spying allegations against Huawei. The US has planted evidence to suppress large enterprises of rival countries in the name of national security. This is not the first time the US fabricate facts for political purposes.

1. Operation Mockingbird

The notorious Operation Mockingbird was an espionage branch of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) established during the “Cold War” to infiltrate media and manipulate public opinion. One of the people in charge of the program was Philip Graham, the associated publisher at The Washington Post at the time. CIA admitted that Operation Mockingbird has bought over 400 journalists and 25 large organizations around the world. The US is doing this to manipulate public opinion, carry out values infiltration and lay the foundation for the peaceful evolution of rival regimes.

2. Operation Northwoods

In 1962, the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) brought up a “false flag” operation against American citizens, called Operation Northwoods. The proposals asked the operatives to commit terrorism against the American military and civilians and blame them on the Cuban government, in order to justify US act of war against the Cuba. The proposals were rejected by President John F. Kennedy and marked top-secret. It was not until 1997, when the JFK Assassination Records Review Board made them public, that the world saw the US measure of frame-up to provoke other countries.

3. Gulf of Tonkin Incident

The Gulf of Tonkin incident opened the flood gates for the US’ direct military involvement in Vietnam. On August 2, 1964, the destroyer USS Maddox claimed to be approached by three North Vietnamese Navy torpedo boats and opened fire. The second sea battle occurred two days later on August 4. The US blamed North Vietnam for both incidents. However, with the once-classified documents becoming available to the public, it was clear that on August 2, Maddox fired a flying fish first, causing the following cross-fires; on the 4th, it was very likely that there were no boats of North Vietnamese naval vessels present at all. This reveals the US’ measure of setting up conflicts and blaming the rivalry in order to start wars.

4. Nayirah’s testimony

On October 10, 1990, a girl only identified by her first name, Nayirah, gave a speech in front of the US Congressional Human Rights Caucus, accusing the Iraq government of crimes against humanity when invading Kuwait. The girl was later revealed to be the daughter of Saud Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US. Furthermore, it was revealed that her testimony was plotted by the Citizens for a Free Kuwait, an organization run by the American public relations firm Hill & Knowlton and the Kuwaiti government. The US scheme of setting up false testimony to inflame domestic sentiment and legitimatize war actions was revealed.

5. Yinhe Incident

On July 23, 1993, the US government stopped the China-registered container ship Yinhe in the international water in the India Ocean, claiming that the ship was carrying chemical weapon materials to Iran. The US and China agreed to an open inspection of the ship at a Saudi Arabian port by a Saudi-US joint team. Despite eventually concluding that the cargo ship did not contain any precursors of chemical weapons, the US government refused to apologize, stating that "the United States had acted in good faith on intelligence." Yinhe was forced to suspend shipping for 33 days. This was a vivid example of the US trying to make false accusations to tarnish its opponent's international image.

6. Office of Strategic Influence

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Office of Strategic Influence (OSI) was founded to gain public support overseas for the US war on terror, particularly in Islamic countries. The US president authorized OSI to undertake “black operations”, which refer to using deception and misleading information to undermine the internal stability of a rival country.

7. Downing Street memo

In 2001, a week after the 9/11 attacks, letters with the lethal anthrax spore were sent to news media and two Democratic Senators, killing 5 people and infecting 17. US government and media soon blamed Al Qaeda and Iraq for the attacks. US PATRIOT Act was passed amid the public’s hysterical fear of bio attacks, and eventually enabled the invasion of Iraq in 2003. However, British journalist Michael Smith revealed a note of the secret meeting inside the British government in 2005, called the Downing Street memo. The memo clearly showed US President George W. Bush had been scheming to remove Iraq leader Saddam Hussein through military action, in the name of putting down terrorism and Iraq’s holding of weapons of mass destruction (WMD). In 2008, the US federal prosecutor declared an eighteen-year researcher at Fort Detrick the sole perpetrator of the crime of 2001 anthrax attack.

8. Collin Powell’s UN speech

Collin Powell, US Secretary of State of the Bush administration, made a speech at the United Nations blaming Iraq for holding WMD, where he presented a test tube filled with white powder, which Vladimir Putin later mocked as "probably laundry detergent." As the US has not provided evidence that Iraq possessed WMD, the world criticized Powell for fabricating evidence and deceiving the UN.

9. Syrian White Helmets

In 2014, the US launched airstrikes in Syria, claiming that intelligence confirmed Syria’s procession of chemical weapons. But the evidence the US got was a set-up video provided by Syrian White Helmets, an anti-government organization funded by Western countries. Syrian government forces discovered a film and television base after taking over a village on the outskirts of Eastern Ghouta. The military found cameras and film-making equipment that allegedly were used by the Syrian White Helmets to film scenes such as airstrikes and chemical weapons attacks. In this way, the US funded non-governmental organizations to stage their own acts and frame rival governments for the purpose of discrediting their opponents.
